So far it's been worth it.

Last night we made our way to Dunn Brothers Coffee to hang some of our artwork on their walls. As I said in a previous post, Dunn Brothers will let local artists sell their art right from their walls. Everyone benefits ~ they don't have to decorate and we hopefully get more exposure.

In December we had gone to Dunn Brothers to check the place out and we're a bit discouraged at the set up. We had decided not to do it. Last week I told JB that it was feeling like we were putting all our eggs in one basket by just having our stuff on Etsy. Even if we didn't sell anything at Dunn Brothers, you never know who would take our business card and buy something off Etsy.

Just as we were finishing hanging up our artwork, some lady walked up and asked what we were doing. We started chatting about Etsy and able mabel. She asked what she need to do if she wanted to buy a picture! She sat down and wrote us out a check right then and there. As she was leaving she said "Happy Birthday to me!"

Even if that's all we sell....it was all worth it!

Great story! The coffee shop sounds like a good venue for your work.
